Reflections On Regional Human Rights Law, Gabriel M. Wilner Dec 1995

Reflections On Regional Human Rights Law, Gabriel M. Wilner

Scholarly Works

The principal purpose of the Colloquium, as can be seen from the great attention given to the papers presented by the second panel, was to discuss the uses of customary international human rights law in the defense of human rights before national courts.
